Are you here looking for the perfect bowl of chili?
Homemade Chili is the perfect food for a cold winter day. This Homemade Chili is full of flavor but yet kid-friendly. Perfect by itself or on a hot dog, baked potato, hamburger, corn chips and more.
Everyone has their favorite Chili recipe. I like this Homemade Chili because my kids say this Chili is kid friendly. Sometimes, if I make Chili too spicy or put chunks of tomato or bell pepper in it, some of my kids will pick them out. I often double this recipe to be able to have plenty of leftovers. You can serve Homemade Chili in a bowl with cheese, sour cream, and chips or my favorite way with cornbread. You could also serve it in a bread bowl. When you reheat it for leftovers, serve it on hot dogs or over a baked potato with shredded cheese for a new meal. Use some Best Homemade Chili to make a Chili and cheese dip.

I know life can get extremely busy. Remember, I have five children including one child with Cerebral Palsy and seizures, two kids with RAD, a son still doing physical therapy because of major knee surgery, a husband who works out-of-town a lot and three dogs. When we think our plate is full, we get one more thing added, and we wonder how we are going to get it all done.
Reese Has Diabetes
Well, this week has been one of those weeks. My smallest baby is a 6-pound poodle named Reese, who has been very sick lately, Thanks to Aunt Marsha who told us it could be diabetes, I took her to the vet yesterday, and he confirmed it. Reese has diabetes. I now find myself catching her potty several times a week to monitor her blood sugar for insulin. some of you are thinking, “Do I need to give a dog insulin?” I asked myself the same question, but Reese has given me ten years of unconditional love. She is the sweetest lap dog ever. I de-stress a lot of days by rocking Reese and talking to God. So, I think a little extra work to keep her healthy is well worth it. The veterinarian said, as long as she takes her insulin, Reese will live for several more years.
Update on Reese
As a result of her diabetes, On November 12, 2015, Reese passed away. I am so thankful we had her for 14 special years.
